A wax museum in Niagara Falls has showcased a Beyoncé Knowles-Carter figure, and the Beyhive is in an uproar over its appearance.
According to the curators of the wax museum in Niagara Falls, this is Beyoncé. 🧐🧐🧐 pic.twitter.com/jrhd1J1qlI— Ama Scriver (@amascriver) February 11, 2018Fans immediately called B.S. on the figure, citing the "Lemonade" singer as one of the most recognizable figures of our time, and yet no wax museum can get her likeness correct.

I love how even the wax figure is like “guys, is this really what you think Beyoncé looks like” pic.twitter.com/uxOKTLZQSI— Jag är Nyfiken (@enfilmigult) February 12, 2018
Yep. And I resemble Ryan Gosling https://t.co/kL1GBSiPcq— Nooruddean (@BeardedGenius) February 13, 2018
The museum has yet to respond to the backlash. Hopefully, whitewashed Bey wax figures will not become a trend.
